Visited the place in March 2017. Being a pure vegetarian myself , i found the starters quite relishing. One thing to keep in mind is that all desserts contain EGG. The best one was the Black forest cake and the cheese cake. The place has a beautiful ambience and should be on your list when in shillong

12 of us went to Lil Chef after days of eating dal-rice in villages and had a heavenly brunch! Food was reasonably priced, portions were adequate and the food was well presented. Both food and beverages were delicious and staff was really sweet! Would love to visit again..

Visited little chef café on a Saturday(Sunday closed). Loved the lamb sandwich and the pulled pork burger. Although the portioning is on the lower side ,but that's just me. Post lunch the chocolate dessert and the mint flavoured cappuccino was out of the world. Will make it my frequent visit joint.

When I went to Lil Chef I wasn't really planning to eat anything much since I had just had my lunch. So I had some coffee n ordered some deserts and they were yum! I'm looking forward to go there for more.

I heard this place was very good but was disappointed by the taste, there are two lil chef's one a cafe and the other a bakery quite close to each other.Skip the cafe and visit the bakery if you must. Shillong has many bakeries and this ain't special.

This is a very popular café in Shillong that I have visited a few times. Its a good place to grab a bite to eat and tea of coffee. Prices are reasonable but the ambience is a bit "cold" for my taste. A couch or two would go a long way in rectifying that.

I happened to visit this Little chef cafe after hearing a lot about it from my friend from Shillong, I do agree that the food served was good and delicious but the attitude of the staffs is not appreciated.

One of the best places to hang out in Shillong as of now. the menu is different and for a change these guys actually serve whatever they have on the menu which is very much unlike other cafes around Shillong. And people, DO TRY THEIR LAMB BURGER WITH BACON AND THE CHEESE CAKES. I havent had a better cheese cake... More
